Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and his Cranes captain Khalid Aucho are confident Uganda will beat Rwanda.
The two nations face off in the first leg of the Fifa World Cup 2022 qualifier in Group E at Stade Regional Nyamirambo in Kigali on Thursday with the reverse fixture on Sunday at Kitende.
Aucho Khalid (Cranes Captain)
“We have played many derbies and won. The players are ready for Rwanda. The young players in the team are like babies taking their first steps to walk. They want to prove a point and are willing to deliver for the Uganda Cranes and make the fans happy.
“We are only thinking about winning the match against Rwanda.”
Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic (Cranes Coach)
“After the match with Mali, our foreign based players put themselves in the competitive mode while the local players got chance to win places in the squad after playing four practice matches. They have shown desire to be in the squad. I believe they will deliver.
With due respect to Rwanda, our target is to get maximum points from these games. Nothing less than that!’
